Battling ng+built up shed hair+under processed sections of strands is a recipe for knots and breakage.......and it was definitely headed my way! Gone are the days of trying to "stretch" my relaxer past 11 or 12 wks for a while; my strands aren't in the best shape to handle that right now.
Speaking of strands, here is my hair now compared to July's relaxer:
Still on the fence about cutting it. It's growing as you can see, but it just look rough and jagged when I wear it like this which is why I haven't worn my hair straight in months.
I think I will hold off on until the end of the year/ beginning of next year, that way it gives my hair the chance to fill in as much as possible and I don't end up having to go shorter than I anticipate. In the meantime I will keep putting my hair in styles that camouflage the un-evenness...... seems to be working so far.
Hoping my hair grows a foot by December so I won't have to cut it lol
